Age of Miracles

Age of Miracles

by Karen Thompson Walker

Judy Stanton (09/29/13): I'm not sure why the author and publisher entitled this book Age of Miracles, because it seemed to me to be an age of lack of miracles. Basically, this is a "coming of age" story told from the perspective of an 11 year old girl as she is experiencing, what, for all intents and purposes, seems like the end of the world. The days kept getting longer and longer, then, the grass wouldn't grow, foods became scarce, birds were falling out of the skies, whales were being beached, and people started suffering from they called the "slowing syndrome." And it took the whole book to have the reader slowly experience one tragedy after another. The only light of hope was that the young lady finally found a friend in a young man, but even that didn't last. To me, it was a depressing story.
